Smartsheets not saving properly

Has this happened to anyone else? Basically what is happening is that changes are made to the sheet, it is saved, and then later it reverts back to the original. My guess is that multiple people are editing the spreadsheet at the same time and it is causing the spreadsheet to get confused about which version to save. Any ideas?

    @NikkiOno I've run into this once or twice.

    First thing to check is browser version. Make sure you're using the latest updated versions of either Chrome, Edge (the newer Chromium-based one,) or Firefox.

    The second thing to look at is how many formulas you have on your sheet and how complex they are. I have run into situations where I had a lot of users entering data into a sheet with a lot of cross-sheet and other complex formulas. The system ran out of resources to do anything other than create new rows since it was too busy with the calculations.

    Lastly, you may just have some corruption on the sheet. Out of the 450+ sheets I control, I've had two or three occasions where I simply had to export my data to Excel and reimport it into a new sheet to get things to work again.
